You have been in an accident and you are still in shock and pain from your injuries, but the doctors, police officers and insurance companies all want you to tell them exactly what happened. It is all extremely confusing and overwhelming. They want information from you, but cannot or are unwilling to help you with what you should do next. Talking to a Personal Injury Attorney in Chico CA will be helpful.
An Attorney Can Tell You What, if Anything, Your Case is worth
Personal injury attorneys have the knowledge and experience to assess cases such as yours and tell you at the very beginning if it will be worth it to you to pursue any action. If it is not likely that you would prevail, you can avoid the expense and time. On the other hand, if you do have a case, an attorney can steer you in the proper direction in the dollar amount it could be worth.
Most Personal Injury Attorneys Work on a Contingency Basis
What that means is if you do not win a settlement in your case, your attorney will not collect any fees. You will be responsible for other types of expenses such as doctors’ fees or anything else that is not directly relevant to the attorney’s services.
You will get an Unbiased Opinion
Your emotional state can prevent you from seeing things clearly. Attorneys are trained to see things objectively, without allowing anger and fear to cloud their judgment. The insurance company may offer you a sum of money and you may rush to grab it just to put all of it behind you. Your attorney on the other hand can clearly see that it is not nearly enough to see you through rehab and pay your bills for the long-term. He or she can counsel patience and help steer you through the hard parts. That is exactly what Amaya and Associates have been doing for fourteen years and intend to keep doing for all their clients. They will work diligently to see that you are protected and get you everything you are entitled to.
